Protecting young people from sexual exploitation
Protect and Respect supports children and young people aged 11 to 19 who have been, or are at risk of being, sexually exploited.
Three levels of support
Protect and Respect offers three levels of support:
Educating young people about keeping safe by helping them understand what child sexual exploitation (CSE) and grooming are compared to a safe, loving relationship.
Supporting young people who may be at risk by helping them to secure and maintain a safer environment and more stable lifestyle.
Supporting young people who have been hurt, but are now in a safe place and need to make sense of what’s happened. We help them understand that sexual exploitation is abuse and it’s not their fault.
